"My time at the Greek Taverna was the best time I've had at a restaurant in a while! From the moment you walk in, the staff and manager and very welcoming. The restaurant itself is beautiful and not too loud. The servers are friendly, attentive, and willing to help. The food is top notch! I had the moussaka and the portion was huge! For the portion, it had the flavor to match. Definitely coming back often!"

"We were a party of 7 and they gave us a waitress who is either absolutely terrible at what she does or was her first day. There were other well seasoned waiters and waitress around so it was very disappointing that they gave our large party to her. We had to ask 5 times for something to come and she forgot to put certain peoples food orders in which caused them to come 15 minutes late while everyone was already finished. The food was below average."

"We are fans of the Greek Taverna in Montclair and assumed this would be the same. We were the only diners and it was fine, nothing to complain about either food or service wise, but nothing stood out as exceptional either. Since we are not from the area I would likely go back to the location near us."

"Very friendly owner, outstanding waitress, excellent lamb chops, good wine. Nextdoor to the first room you enter is a large, pretty dining room with plenty of space between tables. Even when full, the room is quiet enough for easy conversation without straining to hear or speak."

"We celebrated a birthday . Also we had a food allergy kid in our group. The all staff of the restaurant were very helpful with the choices. They made sure everything will be safe for us. Excellent management, very friendly home atmosphere. We were totally satisfied with everything: food choices and qualities, the chef and the server. The manager was absolutely amazing. Thank you for everything."
